Join Anne-Marie Concepción for an in-depth discussion in this video Gathering software, part of InDesign CC 2015: EPUB Fundamentals.
- Okay, as we begin to work with InDesign…in creating EPUBs, you're going to…want to have a program available…on your computer to look at those EPUBs, right?…When you export to PDF, you could look…at those PDFs in Reader or Acrobat.…Well, on a Macintosh, you already have…a program installed called iBooks from Apple.…And that can be your default EPUB reader.…But on Windows, you don't have anything.…So I recommend that Windows users…download Adobe Digital Editions.…And I also recommend that Mac users do too.…ADE for short is free,…it's EPUB 3 compliant, which is good,…and it is not the world's best EPUB reader…and I don't think that many end users…will actually read an EPUB in ADE.…
